The power of mindset comes from focusing your attention on a certain thing in a particular way. By focusing on something you want, or for that matter something you don’t want, Law of Attraction brings what you are focused on to you.
Although the more scientifically minded among us might argue that this cannot be proven, most of us will have had personal experience sufficient to think that there might be some truth to it.

Examples of the Power of Mindset

Think of a time that you wanted something really, really badly. For some reason, you were filled with confidence, and were convinced that you would have what you wanted. Did you get it? I’m betting you probably did.

Of course it doesn’t always work that way. There are other factors to take into account, including our higher selves wisely preventing us from having things that would not benefit us. But a positive attitude very often creates what we want.

Think of the opposite scenario. You go on a date or to an interview with a defeated attitude. ‘There’s no way he is going to like me,’ you tell yourself. ‘This job is way beyond my capabilities,’ whispers your evil twin. Did you get the job or a second date? Unlikely.

So, whether or not you believe in the Law of Attraction, or anything metaphysical (beyond our physical reality), you will probably agree that the power of mindset does exist.

Harnessing the Power of Mindset

We talk ourselves into behaving certain ways by our ‘self-talk.’ If you tell yourself consistently that you can get what you want, that you are capable, attractive, and smart, you will feel and act more confident. Confidence acts as a magnet for good things. Negativity repels them.

To get what you want in life, work on replacing your negative thinking with positive beliefs. Change your focus on what you don’t want to clear ideas of what you do want.
It takes some effort to shift our thought patterns. Most of us are conditioned from childhood to focus on the things we want to avoid, rather than the things we want to achieve.

Negative Conditioning

We are given reasons why something can’t work rather than why it can. We are told we can’t do things far more often than we are told we can, and we learn to look at what’s wrong with a situation rather than what’s right.

Phew, what a terrible bias towards focusing on negative rather than positive. Is it any wonder many of us end up living lives full of things we don’t want?

Many people believe that being positive is ‘unrealistic.’ This has no logical basis. There is no evidence that things are more likely to go wrong than right. Actually, the opposite is true.

Most of the things we fear never happen, so focusing on fear and negativity is really less realistic than thinking positively.

Changing Your Perception

Whether something is good or bad, or right or wrong is all a matter of perception anyway. Taoism states that there is no good news or bad news, only news.

If you can focus on what you want, really keep it in the front of your mind and keep your energy and thoughts on that thing, you are much more likely to get what you want.

Think of why you can do something rather than why you can’t. Look for the good in what’s happening, instead of the bad. If you really look, you can almost always find something good. Grab hold of that good aspect, and focus on it!

Keep your mind firmly focused on what you want. Think about it, dream about it, write about it, talk about it.

Focus on your goals, believe that you can have them, keep a positive attitude, and push negative beliefs and thoughts out of your mind. You really can get what you want if you tap into the power of mindset, and believe that you can.

Author's Bio: 

I'm Amanda Harvey, and for as long as I can remember, I've had a passion for personal development and empowerment. My focus has always been on making life as good as it can be, both for myself and others.

Early in my career, I expressed this focus through teaching ballroom dancing. I loved the way that it helped people come alive and take their minds off their everyday worries, as well as giving them confidence and bringing them joy.

After managing a dance studio in Sydney, Australia for a few years, my desire to experience more of the world started me on the journey of living abroad with my new husband (not so new anymore…. married 22 years in 2020).

Having completed my Masters Degree in Communications, my career developed as a coach and trainer with both individuals and companies. After several years in various parts of Europe, our wanderlust led us to Asia, and we have been living in Taiwan since just before the arrival of the first of our three children in 2004.

I ran a successful online life coaching business,, from 2010 to 2015. The work I did with people through the site, and the feedback I got was wonderful, but time constraints led me to close down the site in 2015. With the increased demand for in-person services for local clients, and the time I wanted to spend with my growing family, I followed my own advice: We can have it all, but not always all at once.

Fast forward to 2020 and I am now launching, my brand new site. With all the years of rich and varied experience, I am focusing on bringing to you the most valuable, specific and effective form of training that I have discovered. Mindset training zeroes in on the biggest factor that determines the success or failure of anything that we undertake, and I am so excited to work with people like you, who know that our lives can be as amazing as we want them to be. If we only decide to make it so.
